How Physical Therapy Cured Sue A.’s Vertigo

 It is estimated that approximately 40% of the population in the United States will experience some form of dizziness or balance difficulty over the course of a lifetime (National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders [NIDCD], 2014). But did you know that vertigo and dizziness can be treated with physical therapy?

Read this story from vertigo sufferer, Sue A., about how her treatment at Advanced Care Physical Therapy allowed her to regain control of her life!

I initially consulted my primary care doctor after persistent vertigo, dizziness and headaches limited my confidence while driving and caused me to discontinue many of my usual activities.  My doctor subsequently referred me to Ted Vlahoyiannis, PT at Advanced Care Physical Therapy. I am very grateful for the help I have received at Advanced Care Physical Therapy as my vertigo and dizziness have decreased, and I have improved my core muscle strength and balance. In addition to just performing my exercises, I learned why I was doing certain exercises and how to perform them independently at home. I have since returned to driving with confidence and resumed an active schedule.  I feel reassured that if I face future health set-backs, thanks to the team at ACPT, I now have the tools to cope with these challenges.
